Why Did You Have To Leave Me?

Why did you have to leave me?

Why did you have to go?

I wish you could explain it to me

As I’d really like to know.

 

You’ll never know how much I miss you,

You’ll never know how much I cry.

I wish you could explain to me

Just why you had to die.

 

I miss your hugs and kisses,

I miss you every day,

But your voice, your humour, your laughter, - 

In my heart they’ll always stay.

 

I know I’ll never forget you, -

You had a big influence on me,

But the pain and the suffering are no more, -

At last your body is free.

 

Why did you have to leave me? 

Why did you have to go?

I’ll love you for the rest of my life

And I just wanted you to know.

 

The memories will stay forever,

I’ll try to remember your face, - 

But your image will start to fade, I know,

As my heart breaks in two and the tears start to flow,

And you vanish without trace.

 

I wrote this in memory of a very dear friend sadly no longer with us.

Hi Madders - that’s a lovely thing to have written for your friend. I’m sure she/he would have been really touched by it. There used to be poems thread, so it would have fitted nicely in there.
